With the NBA’s All-Star game taking place in Toronto this year, it only makes sense to have Drake be the coach of Team Canada’s celebrity all-star team. The 6 God is already the Raptors Global Ambassador, so accepting the role of Head Coach will fit as a nice addition to his LinkedIn. Drizzy will also be receiving some help from former NBA all-star Steve Nash and Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista, who will serve as assistant coaches.
Perhaps adding to his GM skills, Drake has already drafted some stellar players to his team, including Arcade Fire’s Win Butler who will be making his second consecutive appearance in the celebrity all-star game. Along with the indie rock frontman, Team Canada will consist of tennis player Milos Raonic, former NBA player Rick Fox, Natalie Achonwa, HGTV’s Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott (secret weapons), and former Raptors star Tracy McGrady.
Not to be outdone, Team USA will be coached by Kevin Hart who just happens to be a four-time celebrity all-star MVP. Team USA’s players include Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, Nick Cannon, WNBA player Elena Delle Donne, and former NBA players Chauncey Billups and Muggsy Bogues. Noticeably absent from Team USA’s roster? Meek Mill.
The Celebrity All-Star game takes place February 12 with the NBA All-Star game happening February 14.
